Yesterday (7/2/2018), BSBCC was invited to do an awareness programme on sun bear in Sandakan Vision School. Approximately 80 students aged seven to nine years old were involved in this programme. The students and teachers got excited and were eager to learn more about the sun bears. The programme started with introduction session by Ms. Gloria, our Environmental Education Executive. Then Mdm. Sharon conducted an introduction to our sun bear mascot. Our sun bear mascot, Sunny was present to help the students understand better about physical characteristics of a sun bear. After that Ms. Melynda conducted a "Who Am I?" wildlife guessing game before Ms. Risnayati plays a short video about sun bears. We also set up display booth at the school. All of the students enjoyed their time learning about the environment and wildlife species through exhibitions. We hope that they can gain more knowledge on the importance of protecting the environment and our precious wildlife species. Thanks for inviting us!
Exciting for Christmas !! Christmas is a time of joy and spending time with loved ones. What is your wish this Christmas? Help us brighten up the lives of rescued sun bears with Christmas gift! It really makes the difference!!
We caught our mischievous Wawa smiling all the way as she enjoys in the forest with her bear friends! She is so happy to be free roaming in the forest !!
“I know I am free as I climb and play in tall treetops, the trees are tall, big and green! Play fight with friends! The wind blows through my sleek, black coat! Here in the forest, I am digging for favourite insects, looking for honey and beetles." This is where I truly belong- FOREST
Did you know that in the wild sun bears build a safe, comfortable nest to sleep in? Tree nests protect them from predators as well as serve as to be comfortable, safe places to sleep. This is one of the vital skills that their mothers would have taught them in the wild… Check out how one of our rescued adult female sun bear, Damai builds her comfy nest on tree!
Sun bears are well adapted to arboreal living. In the wild, they spend a lot of their time foraging, exploring, building nests and sleeping on the forest canopy. Most of our rescued sun bears love climbing high in trees and Wawa is no exception. She greatly enjoys regular outings to the forest and being a wild bear! We are impressed by her agility and balance!
